A joyously silly retelling of The Nutcracker . . . Bright, boisterous and sweetshop-colourful, with just the right amount of bum jokes, it’s perfect for sharing with 5+ kids in the run-up to Christmas.
Beautifully imaginative, we love the idea of counting down to Christmas by reading a new chapter of this tale every night. It’s incredibly funny, filled with silly names and scenarios, and has heaps of holiday magic. From the bestselling author of festive favourites like The Grumpus and How Winston Delivered Christmas, this book is a gloriously fun retelling of children’s Christmas classic The Nutcracker.
Familiar characters dance into new life in this lavish hardback.
Make a new festive family tradition this year and read a chapter a night of Alex T Smith's absolutely adorable Advent book and enjoy the gorgeous artwork and Christmassy activities.
